First of all, I highly recommend that you read the books in this series in order and do not just dive on in to these book as it is the third in the series (as much as you may like to!). You will learn about Tillie in the previous book and I love to have all the details to the story. Tillie lost her fiancée abroad ship traveling to America and Captain Morgan has not been able to forget her and her anguish over the death of her love. When he learns that Tillie's fiancée's death was a murder he is compelled to be in contact with her; however neither are prepared for what all this news entails and what those responsible for the death have planned.
I really enjoyed this book! I love the New York City setting and this time period as so many are arriving full of hopes and dreams. There is suspense and turns that keep the story moving along and the reader turning the pages. I also really liked the characters and felt like I was drawn right into their lives, both Tillie and Captain Morgan are excellent main characters. I am looking forward to what this author writes next!
